CEO - Sujimoto Construction

Sijibomi Ogundele

Sijibomi Ogundele exemplifies the textbook definition of a Grass to Grace success story. A young man whose evolution from a barely average social standing, through hard work and perseverance, has seen him emerge as an achiever in the society. With a unique blend of entrepreneurship drive from a legal background, his vast wealth of experience as a venture capitalist-cum-investment strategist has established this astute businessman as an outstanding individual amongst his peers.
Making a bold move to relocate to Africa and discover the lacunae in Nigeria luxury real estate, he has religiously made it his mission to deliver classic properties across Lagos. Sijibomi was recently described by Top international news experts as a brave young entrepreneur, set to revolutionise the luxury real estate market in Nigeria; setting standards of excellence and simultaneously expanding his interests in construction, infrastructure, and entertainment, a feat which has positioned him as a man to watch out for in the revolution of Nigeria’s prime real estate industry.
Suji (as he is fondly called) started his business career in venture capital, involving a number of transactions across Europe and the Middle East. He’s worked with top CEOs and business leaders, an excerpt from an interview granted by Mr Ogundele quotes: “My position today is the dividend of hard work but above all the lessons I’ve learnt from mentors and CEOs of different multinational companies”. A mentor of his, Sujimoto Koga predicted: “Siji…everything he touches seems to turn to gold.”  He has made the significance of this motivational word a personal mantra.
With a certified international network, innovative practices, and attention to detail, his objective of propelling the firm into a 21st century property development company of repute is fast becoming a reality; a feat which is an attestation to Mr. Ogundele’s foresight, resilience and ingenuity in project executions.
